First Friday - October 7 - Mark Bentley

This First Friday, October 7th, Hinge Gallery will feature the work of Seattle-based and island-connected artist Mark Bentley.  Bentley's work is steeped the observation nature with all of its beauty and complexity.  Each piece is carefully composed through the collection of objects, weaving, and expertly executed processes.  "We each set out in our own ways to view it (nature), photograph it, carve it, paint it, and raise it up to the public for preservation and conservation," the artist says of his large scale, sculptural forms.  The result are striking, nest like structures, at once recognizable and mysterious.  
Bentley studied painting and sculpture at the University of Washington and currently works in the fashion industry.  Opening reception from 6 - 9 pm, refreshments will be served and live porch music!  The exhibition will be on view through October. 
 
Location:  Vashon Hwy & SW 174thwww.hingegallery.com
